New Release - WICKED TIMES TWO (A Wicked Brand Novel – Book 3) by Tina Donahue




WICKED TIMES TWO

(A Wicked Brand Novel – Book 3)

by Tina Donahue







Genre: erotic contemporary mΓ©nage


Series Blurb:
South Florida just got a helluva lot steamier… During the day, the staff at Wicked Brand makes ink dreams a reality for their appreciative clients. After hours, this naughty crew engages in sensual delights as wild as the designs they’re selling. Their motto? Nothing forbidden. Nothing held back.

Wicked Times Two Blurb:

She’s through with love and just wants to have some wicked fun...

Burned by her cheating boyfriend, Jasmina is finished with the idea of forever after with any guy. That fairy tale doesn’t exist—at least not for her. From now on, protecting her heart and letting pleasure rule is her motto.

Lucky for her, she has the perfect men in mind. Noah and Kyle, two of the hottest cops in West Palm Beach. She hasn’t been able to get them out of her head since they handled an altercation at Wicked Brand, the tattoo parlor she manages. When they come back to get inked, sparks fly.

Noah’s ready to play, and Kyle’s on board. All they want is her—submission, bondage, spanking…no strings or regrets. Seductive days roll into steamy nights, igniting feelings the guys hadn’t expected and Jasmina can’t deny.

What began as a sensual adventure could turn into so much more…if Jasmina can risk a different kind of love.


Excerpt:

A threesome. Exactly what Jasmina Reyes needed to get out of her dating funk and move on with her life. Who better to get her juices flowing than Noah Guzman and Kyle Loring? The poster boys for badass who stepped out of her fantasies and were now approaching Wicked Brand.
Her pulse ticked up. She leaned against the counter and zeroed in on them like a lust-seeking missile.
Both men were in their early thirties and seriously tall. Six-three if they were an inch. They’d ditched their uniforms for tees and jeans. Their shoulders were broad, hips narrow, their muscular thighs and arms the stuff that generated female wet dreams. They were also West Palm Beach cops, alpha to the core, authoritative and assured. The freaking jackpot.
Kyle and Noah stopped outside the parlor display window.
Jasmina’s belly fluttered. She pushed to her toes and craned her neck to see better. Thankfully, no artist inked a client in the front chair, so she had a decent view of the city’s finest officers.
Wind tousled Kyle’s honey-blond hair, short on the sides and back, longer on top. The thick locks grazed his surprisingly dark eyebrows. Sooty lashes framed his hazel eyes. His bronze complexion made him seem golden, his masculine features sexy as hell.
She held her breath to avoid whimpering in delight.
At his side, Noah was pure sin, almost too handsome to be real. His greenish-gray eyes were intense and somewhat brooding, his olive-toned skin darkened by days in the sun, his wavy black hair long enough to invite a woman to run her fingers through the tresses as she captured his mouth with hers.
Heat poured through Jasmina, weakening her.
If forced to choose between them, she’d plead for both. Each man radiated danger, the kind only a bad boy could project, yet they also afforded protection, treating a woman with respect. They’d done so with Marnie when her ex-boyfriend had attacked her outside the parlor last year. Rather than treat her like a helpless victim or, worse, an instigator in the assault, they’d spoken to her gently. They’d also ignored cop protocol and allowed her to postpone her witness statement so she could attend to her bruised face.
Jasmina sensed they’d be just as considerate in bed, giving rather than merely taking, no matter how wild things got.
Warmth and curiosity rolled through her as to why they were in Northwood Village. The touristy enclave in West Palm Beach didn’t seem like a place they’d frequent on a day off. She pictured them at the beach or a sports bar, possibly a gym where they worked on their pecs and abs, sweat glistening, muscles bunching, veins bulging as they eyed the ladies.
Unless they were here to get a tat.
Their profiles were to her, their attention on someone down the street. Noah inclined his head in greeting to whoever it was, followed by Kyle, their smiles pleasant and welcoming.
Tor, an ink artist here and also Marnie’s boyfriend, joined them. Jasmina bit her lip. She hoped this visit wasn’t about Marnie’s ex getting bail because of a savvy defense attorney. Please, not that. Ethan hadn’t only assaulted her and threatened her life, but he’d attacked Noah and Kyle when they’d intervened. That stupid move was supposed to keep him behind bars for a long time while he faced numerous charges plus a trial.
The guys shook hands and spoke. Tor smiled wide enough to produce his signature dimples.
Knowing him, he wouldn’t be doing that if Kyle and Noah had delivered bad news.
She relaxed. Sort of.
They chatted further, their voices too low for her to capture over the peppy Cuban music that played loudly in here. Maybe she should go outside, see what was up, and say hi. Casually, though, despite her pounding heart and the perspiration rolling down her spine.
The last time she’d seen Kyle and Noah was at Lauren’s wedding months ago. They’d been with dates then. According to Lauren, those relationships were casual, not serious. However, things might have changed…maybe.
During the reception, Kyle and Noah snuck peeks at her while their dates mingled. Kyle couldn’t have been more serene as his date flirted with other guys, his face placid. Carefree seemed to be in his nature. Noah was equally composed but in a self-assured way, like few things ruffled him. Probably good traits to have in their line of work.
Even with an opportunity to make her move on them, Jasmina had held back. She knew what it was like to be cheated on. Casual or not, she would never horn in on someone else’s relationship and hurt another person like she’d been wounded by Brad.
The guys’ smiles faded as Tor continued to talk.
Noah looked over, directly at her, and trapped her with his intent gaze.
She stilled, unable to smile or pull in a breath, lost in his attention.
Tor glanced at her.
That wasn’t as pleasant as Noah’s look and didn’t seem accidental.
What did you say to them?
Noah’s face gave nothing away, his behavior typical cop. Assertive. Assured. Irresistible.
Her legs turned watery. Fierce need overwhelmed her. She craved to be in his arms, their mouths joined, his size and weight confining her.
Kyle glanced at her, too, dismay in his eyes.
What is going on?

Face Cream #SCAM Buyer beware of this company Sans Age. Read the conditions carefully

I recently fell foul of a scam on the internet

Basically it was offering #FREE face cream and face lift serum for the price of packaging.

Too good to be true you say, Abso - bloody-lutely so!

This company claimed that it was run by two ladies that won on Dragon's Den. Yeah, they won on Dragons's Den but, it was to do with swimwear, and NOT this face cream or face lift serum.

To add insult to injury, the stuff is useless, and the lines and wrinkles I had, I still have.

The company at fault here is one called Sans Age. They make claims about how *amazing* this cream is but on blog post, all I could see were complaints and people trying to return the product! Even though packaging was billed at £4.95 or so, if you want to return the product this leaps to £10!


Basically, what I am saying is just don't go there. They not only charge you almost £100 for each product, they put a continuous charge on your account so they can send you this rubbish monthly and charge you almost £100 a pop for the privilege.

This is from the Daily Mirror online about the scam.




"A beauty products scam is snaring victims by claiming to have won Dragons’ Den.
The online headline trumpets: “£4.95 Moisturizer That Removes The Signs Of Aging Gets Biggest Deal In Dragons’ Den History.”
The blog goes on to say that the episode, featuring sisters Anna and Samantha Williams, was “the most watched episode in Dragons’ Den history”.
Exactly the same claim is being made for numerous skin creams.
Total Age Repair has apparently also won Dragons’ Den, its website urging you to send for a “risk-free trial bottle”.
Claire Hydrafirm anti-age cream is billed as yet another winner, its website gushing: “Limited time offer, you only pay for postage!”
Dermagen iQ claims to be “Hollywood’s newest best-kept secret” – although it can’t be that well-kept if, as claimed, it too won the most watched episode of Dragons’ Den.
The only bit about any of this which is true is that the two women pictured are sisters. But they are not Anna and Samantha Williams and they’ve got nothing to do with these creams.


Their real names are Shelly Hyde and Kara Haught, and here they are (pictured above) as they triumphed on the US version of Dragons’ Den, called Shark Tank, with a women’s swimwear business. The image has been repeatedly cropped and used by the skin cream scammers.
“We haven’t ever given anyone permission to use our images and have no affiliation with these companies or products,” they told me. “We would love to get them to stop – not sure how though. It’s so frustrating.”
Online forums are awash with people who say they saw pop-up ads for these products on social media, applied for a trial offer and then found themselves being stung for monthly fees of around £80.
It’s known as a subscription trap and it’s a global scam, with different versions of the same rubbish claiming to have won Dragons’ Den or Shark Tank all over the world.
The epicentre of the scam appears to be the United States, where these products are churned out with ever-changing names.
In Canada, it’s called Oveena – “Don’t get left behind” urges the website. In Australia, it’s Pure Natural, which claims “Sell Out Risk: High”.
In the States, there’s Bella Rose RX with a “limited time offer”.
The US consumer watchdog Better Business Bureau says that victims thought they were paying a nominal amount for a sample but ended up paying hundreds of dollars for skin cream “with little or no value”.
It pins the blame on two businesses – Vital Global Marketing and Beauty & Truth – saying they are behind dozens, “perhaps hundreds”, of skin cream scams. It gives them an "F" rating, its lowest.
“People need to understand that there are many businesses that offer free trials in order to hook unsuspecting consumers into monthly charges,” said Bureau president Michelle Corey.
“It is critical that potential customers of these businesses read everything, especially the terms and conditions portion of the agreements, to make certain they are not going to be charged for merchandise they did not intend to order.”
Trouble is, as the Bureau points out, these sites discourage consumers from doing just that by urging you to act quickly, and sometimes even using a countdown clock ticking off the seconds remaining to complete an order.
Beauty & Truth has not responded to me or to the Bureau.
Last year, the Bureau did get a reply from Vital Global Marketing, which is now dissolved.
A spokesman blamed unrelated skin cream businesses for many of the complaints and then, with incredible cheek, blamed the victims themselves, saying many consumers “are just massive scammers and essentially stealing the product from us so they can sell it on."


So this is a SCAM alert for you 


This is another article that refers to the scam. Just scroll down and read all the comments there. I am not the only one that has been scammed.

As far as I am aware *false advertising* is classed as FRAUD in the UK!


Be safe out there, and don't fall for this scam

If you do. there are ways to claim your money back through something called a Chargeback scheme in the UK

Return of the Vampire Hunter is pure urban fantasy with a hint of seduction thrown in for good measure. Set in Manchester, Northern England, it is a contemporary story with all the darkness of classic Gothic monsters.




Just your average Cheshire housewife – who used to hunt vampires!

Hannah Oakley used to be a vampire hunter. She retired from active service when she fell in love with the female vampire she was hunting, but old wounds refuse to heal. She and the vampire fought almost to the death, and now it seems that the vampire has tracked her down. Hannah must return to work, grudgingly accepting help from a new hunting partner, and she is determined that this time she will finish the job. But can she ignore the old lust for her vampire lover? Is the mother able to be a vampire hunter one more time? And will her marriage survive the ordeal?

Return of the Vampire Hunter is available to download FREE throughout January, and will be available as a paperback book in 2018.

Excerpt:
We were on the motorway and I was in the passenger seat. I had been passing food to the children in the back seat, and as I twisted back round to face forward, I glanced at James. My heart skipped a beat and then pounded heavily as the world spun around me.
            What is that on your neck? I asked sharply.
            James glanced at me and then checked his mirrors as he moved into the middle lane.
            What? he asked absently.
            That, I said, On your neck.
            I reached across and gently touched the mark on his skin. It looked like two small, neat puncture wounds. A vampire bite. Shit.
            James touched the bruise, winced, and then shook his head.
            I dont know, he said, I must have cut myself shaving.
            That is not a shaving wound, I said.          
            He glanced at me again and frowned.
            Why are you so upset about it? he asked curiously, Its nothing.
            I stared at the tiny wound as my whole world flipped upside down. Was it Elaine? Had she finally found me? Or was it another stray vampire? One thing was certain; I had to return to work. This one had to be destroyed before it came for my whole family. Gathering my senses, I shook my head and smiled.
            Oh, forget it, I said lightly, It looked more serious at first, thats all. But, if it doesnt hurt then it doesnt matter. Can you see the sea yet, girls?
